Market size and viability
As a publisher, you see a lot of book ideas and have to determine whether or not they are viable and helpful. You also deal with the increasing difficulty of competing against digital books.
Suddenly Single: A Practical Guide to Maintaining Your Household When Your Spouse is No Longer Available is intended primarily for Baby Boomers who lose their spouse due to sudden death, short- or long-term illnesses, or divorce. There are 18 million people in this target market in the US alone.
It is also written generally enough to help elderly people and younger adults who lose their spouses. And it addresses both very recent loss and situations that occur years after loss.
